I hope you’re all doing well and adjusting to our new normal. Speaking of adjusting (see what I did there?), imagine being a transgendered boy starting at a new high school and just wanting to fly under the radar for senior year. That’s how Stay Gold by Tobly McSmith begins. It’s a terrific new YA novel I think you’ll all enjoy (and appreciate).
It’s written by a former colleague of mine at HarperCollins, Tobly, who wrote it specifically to address a gap he saw in bookstores for LGBTQ+ stories. So if you have customers looking to celebrate Pride Month with a new read or just wanting to escape with a funny, poignant story then Stay Gold may be for them.
